Re: J&m digital player plugins? 1800

Thanks for the input, I think I'll pass on this upgrade. I purchased a longer cord so I can keep my phone in my tank storage pouch, works fine. What I think I would really like is a satellite radio setup. There is a lot of nothing from Vegas to anyplace else and radio reception is spotty at best. G...

Re: J&m digital player plugins? 1800

I've been considering purchasing one of the J&M units and installing it. Based on the comments I'm reading from you all, should I even bother with one? I don't want to have to hassle with pulling fuses. My MP3 adapter on my phone works fine.. Well, all I can say is that after I purchased the J&M un...

Re: J&m digital player plugins? 1800

All you have to do is pull the audio fuse and re-install. That will reset the audio system.

Re: Vibrating mirrows

Well, you are about half way thru the tire life, and I personally never had any luck with Dunlop tires, so you could bite the bullet and get a new set of tires or at least the rear and I would throw out the wheel weights and use Dyna Beads for balancing. If that doesn't do the trick, I will stand by...

Re: Vibrating mirrows

Well, there are a lot of variables here. How many miles on you're bike, What brand tires, how are they balanced, If all the obvious is ruled out, and it is getting up into the higher mileage range, my guess would be U-joint on the drive shaft. Just my .02

Mp3 Player Problems

My factory CD player finally crashed after 7 years so I opted to replace it with the J&M Digital player. Install was pretty much a no brainer, but loading the thumb drive and getting it to display "CD2" is another story. No matter how many songs I load in each CD position, I can not get CD2 to displ...

Re: How many of us are retired?

Retired in 2005 at 52 years old. Purchased my 3rd and most likely last goldwing in 2010 which is a 2005 model year. I have been enjoying goldwings since my first new purchase in 1985.

Re: Right Turn Only

That's a good question. I am not sure that every single time this issue has happened I was using my turn signal. I do know that I always try to use my signals when I ride.

Right Turn Only

I have a 2005 1800 with 17,000 miles and on my last ride I noticed that every time I leaned into a right hand curve or turned right at an intersection, parking lot, and etc. , My radio will cut in and out and my trip meter will go to zero. I will also get a "popping" noise in my helmet headset if th...

Re: Dyna-Beads

I have had beads in my 05 1800 with Bridgestones and also in my GMC pick up Hankook tires for over a year now and I will never use wheel weights again. My wing has never rode so smooth. Took a 3600 mile road trip last spring and the ride was smooth as silk. No evidence of tire cupping to date. My GM...
